bombers-notebook

I finally finished up my submission for the Majora’s Mask zine

I decided to try something a little different and draw an enemy from the game. Garo Master. Ikana is my favorite area in the game and Stone Tower Temple is my favorite temple. There’s just so much mystery surrounding this area it makes it feel so alive even though everyone is dead. 

Also, I tried some different things with my coloring. It was interesting but I’m still trying to decide if I like it.

finally! all (?) of the pause menu’s textures have been replaced! everything is still a WIP of course; might tweak a couple of icons (esp the button icons…) and the map but otherwise this is p much done! Yay

I really wanted to give the impression that the menu was link’s journal; rough paper with little notes-to-self in the margins. originally i wanted all the icons to be stamps but they looked terrible when assigned to the c buttons so only a couple of things in quest status menu are stamps instead

but it was super fun to design the stamps (esp the heart icons!) and i’m currently working on making the bombers notebook follow that same style 

still i like the current style of icons. most of them are closer to the actual in game meshes esp in colours (and thats same reason they’re all angular and i think they work well. took a while to get the style down but yay, was fun to do (took forever tho)

Work in Progress of the cover and contents page.

The cover is nearly done, needs a little more polish and might change the text gradient but I want it to look authentically like the in-game version!
Not sure if I should change the text to english? Or add English text saying ‘A Majora’s Mask Zine/The Bombers Notebook. I should also probably wait to see the New Bomber’s Notebook and see what’s different.

(ps if you’re name isn’t on the contents page, don’t worry! This is a test and I just used the first 11 artists I had. Doesn’t mean your submission won’t be in the zine).

Suggestions/Thoughts?

THE BOMBERS’ NOTEBOOK WILL BE IMPROVED

You might be thinking, “there wasn’t anything wrong with the Bombers’ Notebook, so what is there to improve?”. While that is true, the reason isn’t because of any flaws, but due to the game coming to a handheld console. The Bombers’ Notebook will be redone so the player can actually be more aware of the additional quests, especially since now the player doesn’t have to manage their playing time since the game can be played whenever and on the go. 

Here are some quotes from Eiji Aonuma from the GamesMaster column this new information came from:

We were told by Mr. Miyamoto that he felt there were a lot of users who finished the original without even noticing all the hidden events scattered around the town. He said that he wanted us to make sure users were more aware of them this time around.

When the game was launched, I believed that the real purpose was for players to overcome this pressure and experience a sense of achievement. On a portable console, users don’t have to choose when or where they play, they can keep on playing the game whenever they want. I think this should allow all users to enjoy that special sense of achievement.

The test copies of the zine arrived today! 

There’s a few things I need to correct to do with cropping and placement but I’m almost ready to send out for a 50 copy shipment!

If you want one - please keep checking back to this tumblr, they should be less than £10 each (including shipping) and unless a lot of people want copies after the initial run I won’t be making any more.

Also, if you’re in the zine you should have gotten an email from me by now. It was a very tough decision and I spent about 5 hours just trying different pieces to get the best, most varied zine! I want to thank everyone for their hard work and spectacular entries! I will put up a pdf in the next week or two for everyone to enjoy with all the entries in it so look forward to that!

Oh and, the Bombers Secret Society of Justice forever!
